Screen shot 2012-11-09 at 2.45.38 PM

An old nemesis of Olivia has some, uh, interesting ideas about how to get elected to the White House. [...]

Community: Season 1, Ep. 5 and Ep. 6 – ‘Advanced Criminal Law’ and ‘Football, Feminism and You.’

In both of these episodes, the show is still largely making fun of Greendale and, through it, it’s own central conceit. “What happens when a whacky bunch of kids gets together at a rundown community college . . .?” Later on, Community will start to take on television and movies more broadly, but in the [...]

Against a Buffy Reboot.

The LAT has a post up about the writer of the new Buffy The Vampire Slayer film reboot, Whit Anderson. The film is set to proceed without BTVS creator Joss Whedon, and Anderson calls on feminism to explain why she loves the character:

How The Boondocks Fell Off.

Because I can’t get those 30 minutes of my life back.

The title of the program itself should have been a clue to stay away. If that wasn’t enough, [...]

Humpday Hate: ‘Love’ is Such a Strong Word.

There are few people who would disagree that Martin is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. Another squarely solid favorite is Will Smith‘s The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. So, it would make sense that someone would figure a show from Martin Lawrence and starring a Fresh Prince alum to [...]

Mad Men, Season 3, Episode 8: Souvenir

As usual there are so many things to get into, but I just have to say GO BETTY!!!

She was gone for a while, but the the girl is definitely back and I like it. It was strange territory to be in starting from last week – I had [...]
